EARTH DAY IS BACK in 2021! ONLY THIS TIME ITS A WEEK-LONG CELEBRATION!

Green Ossining’s 10th Annual Earth Day Festival will be a weeklong celebration of activities, partnerships and offers beginning on Saturday April 17 through Sunday, April 25, 2021.

Determined to not let another year escape, we have pivoted from our usual large scale in-person event format, and with more than 60 activities –including week-long offers, opportunities at a set date and time, small socially-distanced gatherings or special on-line entertainment and educational experiences — there will be something for everyone.

Engagements include opportunities to show-up for a community-wide clean-up, visit a petting zoo, participate in special events at local farms, learn how to cook and eat healthier, enjoy hands-on kid’s activities, purchase fair-trade and local artisan goods, participate in NY farm beer tastings, learn about composting, plant trees in our parks, and hear and participate in live music events. As well, many of our local brick-and-mortar businesses will have special offers because supporting a local economy is a facet of a sustainable future. And that is just a sample of what we have planned!

“While the pandemic has tested our resilience on so many levels, record numbers of people turned to the great outdoors and spent time taking in the gifts that only our natural world could offer. Parallel to continued interest in the outdoors, human-caused planetary warming continues to hasten the instability of the global and local climate. It is imperative communities also understand what is at stake, the urgency of action, and both the necessity and importance of individual participation. We have all spent the past year being incredibly creative, and we’re grateful for an opportunity to envision a meaningful and safe Earth week celebration with all of you in 2021.” said Suzie Ross, Chairperson and founding member, Green Ossining.

Town of Ossining Supervisor, Dana Levenberg, said “The Town of Ossining is happy to once again partner with Green Ossining to celebrate Earth Day, this year in a week-long socially distanced approach that considers the care for our public health as well. Of course, all the sustainability initiatives that will be highlighted throughout the week not only benefit the long-term health of our environment, but our bodies and minds as well. Big thanks to Green Ossining team for continuing to push us all to take personal responsibility for our Earth, during Earth Week and every week.”

“As we rush to plan for a post-pandemic recovery, I encourage all Ossining residents and businesses to “build back better.” The risks faced by ignoring the threats of environmental destruction must be understood and addressed with protections and policies. The weeklong Earth Day events will educate and entice us all to become citizen scientists and active green participants. Thank you to Green Ossining for creating these local windows of opportunities, “ said Village of Ossining Mayor, Rika Levin.

The Festival is hosted and organized by Green Ossining, with the assistance of the Town and Village of Ossining. Stay tuned for more updates and about other special events happening throughout the day!
